Louie Bellson 5K Memorial Drum Roll to Support Music Education

5K run/walk in Moline, Illinois honors drum legend and benefits music education programs in Illinois Quad City area

Saturday, October 16, 2010 marks the inaugural running of the Louie Bellson 5K Memorial Drum Roll in Monline, Illinois. The late Bellson was a native son of Moline and was dedicated to mentoring younger musicians, so it’s fitting that the run/walk will raise money for music education programs in the Illinois Quad City area. His widow Francine Bellson will be flying in from California to be part of this event.
